The Lab Hakuba

Had an absolute ball staying at The Lab! The staff were amazing and very helpful. Full of great vibes and a lively atmosphere. Highly recommend. In a great location as well.
I'll be back!
The Lab was a great place to stay at. Awesome bar on the ground level and great staff. It was also the perfect location between Happo and Echoland so everything is within walking distance!
The lab is the ultimate lodge in Hakuba, with the best lodge bar/lounge and awesome breakfast and dinners served daily. Spend a week here and you'll leave with friends for the rest of your life. That's the kind of place it is. Located close to the Happo lifts, and walking distance to both the night life options in echoland and Happo, I don't think I would stay anywhere but the lab in Hakuba.
